Getaway Car Lyrics

[Intro]
No, nothin’ good starts in a getaway car

[Verse 1]
It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
I struck a match and blew your mind
But I didn’t mean it and you didn’t see it
The ties were black, the lies were white
In shades of gray in candlelight
I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason

[Pre-Chorus]
“X” marks the spot where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, I was lyin’ to myself
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
We never had a shotgun shot in the dark (Oh)

[Chorus]
You were drivin’ the getaway car
We were flyin’, but we’d never get far
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Ridin’ in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Shoulda known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me

[Post-Chorus]
In a getaway car (Oh-oh-oh)
No, they never get far (Oh-oh-ah)
No, nothin’ good starts in a getaway car

[Verse 2]
It was the great escape, the prison break
The light of freedom on my face
But you weren’t thinkin’ and I was just drinkin’
While he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, “Go, go, go”
But with three of us, honey, it’s a sideshow
And a circus ain’t a love story and now we’re both sorry (We’re both sorry)

[Pre-Chorus]
“X” marks the spot where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, every man for himself
I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
It hit you like a shotgun shot to the heart (Oh)

[Chorus]
You were drivin’ the getaway car
We were flyin’, but we’d never get far
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Ridin’ in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Shoulda known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me

[Post-Chorus]
In a getaway car (Oh-oh-oh)
No, they never get far (Oh-oh-ah)
No, nothin’ good starts in a getaway car

[Bridge]
We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde (Oh-oh)
Until I switched to the other side, to the other side
It’s no surprise I turned you in (Oh-oh)
‘Cause us traitors never win

[Breakdown]
I’m in a getaway car
I left you in a motel bar
Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys
That was the last time you ever saw me (Oh)

[Chorus]
Drivin’ the getaway car
We were flyin’, but we’d never get far (Don’t pretend)
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
Ridin’ in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart (Shoulda known)
Shoulda known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me

[Post-Chorus]
In a getaway car (Oh-oh-oh)
No, they never get far, oh-oh-ah
No, nothin’ good starts in a getaway car

[Outro]
I was ridin’ in a getaway car
I was cryin’ in a getaway car
I was dyin’ in a getaway car
Said goodbye in a getaway car
Ridin’ in a getaway car
I was cryin’ in a getaway car
I was dyin’ in a getaway car
Said goodbye in a getaway car
